It’s only April, but apparently there's a heat wave going
on. Only this heat wave is confined to the buildings of
It never fails — on the warmest days since last fall, most
of the buildings on campus have been blasting the furnace at
The university provides an education for some, for the oth
ers it provides employment. Making campus conditions
comfortable to everyone who has to be here day-in and dayout is what needs to be done.
Imagine being packaged in a can of sardines. Now place
that can in a microwave for two-and-a-half hours. That's
what classrooms have been feeling like for the past few days.
It would seem the powers that be arc lending a deaf ear or
a cold shudder to the pleas of the student body.
Students pony up a good deal of money to this university
during the academic careers, it would seem they could at
least fix the heating and cooling mishaps.
For example, the Mary Cable Building — which was built
in the Mesozoic era — runs air conditioning during the win
ter and heat during the summer.
Now I realize that a new facility is going to eventually be
built in its place, but students still have to endure that pneu
monia-shift for the next few years.
It has gotten so bad in the Student Activities Center, that
students can crack eggs on the floors and cook them instead
of going to the food court.
It's no wonder that many students on campus have been
disappearing because of illness this past winter.
Imagine what the school would be like if the classrooms
where actually kept at normal temperatures. There would be
more students in class learning instead of sitting in bed tak
ing shots of Formula-44 and watching Jerry Springer.
Students have to deal with discomfort for a class or two,
but faculty and stafF base to work in these conditions all day.
It is up to all of us to demand a better comfort-zone and
cry out for a change in these conditioas. Students and staff
need to encourage the administration to fix this problem —
Dealing with hot, sticky, crabby students and workers is
not something the administration of this school should have
to put up with. But they need to realize that if people are

Educational experiences outside the classroom
Reasons why students should be involved with volunteering for student services both on and off campus.
r hat is the best class students have ever taken?
What made it such a good experience?
i it about the class dm kept students inlet
them to work hard and helped them fed like it was a rewarding experience?
If they are like most college students, the class that produces the roost ex
citement and the strongest desire to leant is a class that has the following char*
■ Active rather than passive learning;
■ relevancy rather than unrelated learning.
Although there may be other idiosyncratic <
that are important —
like a particularly charismatic instructor — wl
present, students work harder and enjoy the experience more than when they
One of the two ways in which IUPUI is making classes more engaging is by
In service-learning classes, j

In a service setting, students are faced with real situations that challenge
what they think, what they know and how they behave. When this happens, the
Service learning classes are powerful educational experiences because the
The applied situations challenge the student to understand what knowledge
is relev ant and to understand the ways in which that knowledge has limitations,
In addition, students work with professionals in the field to gain a better un
derstanding of the challenges they face.
Another way is to qualify for the Federal Work Study program.
IUPUI students who qualify for Federal Work Study now have the opportu
nity to become involved with kids — and earn money.
President Clinton committed Federal Work Study moneys to the America
Reads Challenge to ensure that every child can read independently by the end
of the third grade.
The America Reads Challenge builds on groundwork being laid by classroom teachers, librarians and reading specialists by drawing upon the invigo
rating spirit of community volunteers in tutoring and mentoring.
IUPUI has developed a tutoring program at eight sites near campus.
Some of these programs run during the school day. while others are after
Each site is given the flexibility to develop the tutoring program to fit within
their preexisting organization.
At each site, college students eligible for Federal Work Study funding earn
eight dollars per hour.
The number of hours worked varies among students depending on their
Some IUPUI students participue in the Indiana Reads Corps, an America
Corps project in which students are paid an hourly wage and earn a tuition sti
pend ranging from $1,500 to $2,363
The college students provide assistance with reading and homework. They
also serve «s r

Having college students interact
with young students is important be
cause it establishes and strengthens
the children’s educational expocta-
College students receive regular
training and enjoy the camaraderie of working with other IUPUI students.
The students will also gain valuable experience and have the satisfaction of
making a positive difference in the lives of youth.

Sometimes they work one-on-one with students, ocher times they work with
students and teachers, they confront a rich set of experiare related to development, motivation, learning, and such social

r t of the service learning experience has students write mini-papers that:
■ Describe whai occurred in the classroom;
■ analyze how the course concepts are related to their experiences; and
■ apply the experience to their own values, altitudes, beliefs, and life.
The papers written by these psychology students demonstrate that they bet
ter learn lessons related to psychology, clarify career goals, develop a better undemanding of elementary education and gain a new appreciation for instilling
educational gods in youth.
All of the college students appreciate the warm reception they receive from
The experience becomes not only educationally meaningful but also person
ally and socially significant.
One student commented by saying, *T really enjoyed this project to fat

T was so glad to be there and be of use,” said another. ‘These kids are so
refreshing to work with because they are so willing and eager to leara. I fed
motivated to hdp and influence children in every way that I can "
"Working with these children has been very exciting so far," another student
adds. T h ese visits have changed my goals that I had set for myadf a long time
ago. I am considering changing my major so 1 can be a teacher."
Finally another student adds. "My first goal is to make these children fed
like they are wanted and that someone cares about them."
